[Newcastle] New rider, GS500 first bike
« on: August 01, 2016, 11:44:14 AM »
Hey everyone,

I'm 25 years old and just gotten into the hobby/lifestyle/addiction/whatever this bike thing is going to turn into.

As the subject says iv just gotten myself a GS500 and am already in love with it. I'm joining up to get some knowledge about the bike, advice on a few issues and possibly find people who like to ride in the area for some nice highway trips in the future

Ps. Love how the verification process makes you research the bike :P Seems like if I read and post enough on here I'll be an expert in no time
